Hi,
I have just obtained the above mentioned radio from an opp shop. Can anyone tell me any information on these. Years sold etc? It seems in reasonable condition but that is yet to be determined . Thanks for any help.

STC Valve Radio

STC management at the time:

"No! You CANNOT have any money for tooling!!"

That would have been from the credit-squeeze era - 1960 I think.
STC radio and TV manufacture closed down about that time, along with many other manufacturers..

I've got one of those radios, except a knob is missing. I bought it at Morayfield Pawnbrokers, in mid-2017.

Yes, it works perfectly, just tried it now.

To turn it on, you have to pull out the knob at bottom right.


The knob at top left has to be in the left-most position (Radio).
